New research suggests that the first woman to orbit the earth was one of the first women to launch a spacecraft into space.
The first to go into space was Margaret Huggins, a retired pilot from Georgia who worked for NASA from 1961 to 1966.
NASA launched Huggs’ Sputnik 1 in 1961 to prove that humans could land on the moon and make the journey to Mars.
NASA is using Huggies space flight as a model for women who want to travel to space.
NASA’s Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate says the new satellite is the first of its kind to fly to orbit and the first to have a dedicated mission control center.
The space agency plans to launch the Sputniks on a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
NASA has partnered with SpaceX and Blue Origin to launch four Sputnick satellites into low Earth orbit in 2017.
Huggis’ Sputo, as she is known in the space community, was built at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
It has a diameter of 3,000 feet (1,868 meters), a payload capacity of 30 metric tons (65 metric tons), and a flight time of 3.5 hours.
NASA says that it hopes to use the satellite to test the capabilities of the human body in space, as well as test technologies to protect astronauts from radiation exposure.
The company is using a robotic arm to attach the satellite, which will be carried by a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket.
The mission is scheduled to launch on March 20.
NASA said the Sputsnik 1 will fly on the same mission as the Sputo spacecraft, which is scheduled for launch on May 8.
